  1. Teaching TWH's to rack?

    gakim26: To be honest I really don't remember if his head shakes or not. I use him as a trail horse, and the people I ride with who also have TWH don't really let them gait that much, we are almost always walking, and they don't really like it if I hold back and gait to catch back up. And when I do ask him to gait I look more for anything that might make him trip, which he tends to do a lot, then I pay attention to him shaking his head.
  2. Teaching TWH's to rack?

    Thanks for your comments everyone! I know gaiting comes natural to TWHs, I just recently learned how to "help" my horse gait better/smoother by adding a little bit of pressure to the bit and squezing my legs against him. gakim26- I don't think I have any pictures of my horse in his gaits. They are all of him just standing around, or me leading little kids around on him, or him running on his on. I never asked my horse to rack, because I don't know how to ask him, which is what I am trying to learn how to do. He is 24 yrs old so I think he must have done it at some other point in his life, but you never know.
  3. Teaching TWH's to rack?

    Does anyone know how to teach a TWH to rack? What kind of tack do I need? Don't you have to use two different types of bits, for different reactions? Any information about teaching TWH's to rack would be helpfull!

  12. Music Player Question! Please Help!

    I am trying to buy a some kind of music player, but I don't know what to get, and what to look for. I do know that I wont be able to pay over $100s so I can't get an Ipod. My internet conection is VERY SLOW, so I mainly will just download my cd's on to it. So does that mean I can't use a MP3 player, do they only work for downloading of a website? What do I need to look for if I am just going to download cds onto them? Which ones should I look at, and stay away from? Any thing will help! Thanks

  14. How can I get my TWH to park out? and a pic

    quote: Originally posted by twhgirl: Have taught a few to park out,,all I have ever done is put a halter and lead rope on them,be somewhere where its quiet.Get the horse to stand,then I just use the toe of my boot and tap on the back of their foot and tell them(Get down)when they move that foot forward I tap the other foot,,I get them to hold that position for a few mins.I move them forward and let them get back to a full stand and do it over again.Pretty soon they are stretched out,I reward with praise and treats.After a few days they know what I am asking for,I tell them to (Get down) barely touch the front feet and down they go...As they relax with it their butts come down as well and they are all parked out... Hope this helps,,good luck,and happy trails Thanks! I'll give it a try as soon as it drys up some! Good luck, and happy trails to you too!
